Coming soon, Currently building a pair of 2"x4" square frame mounted sliders and a pair of 1/4" plate rockers. Should have pics next week.

Here's some wheeling pics from labor day though.

Well, I finally got around to finishing my hardtop. Did a once over with scotchbrite to take off the loose stuff and sanded down the tailgate. Painted it with Rustoleum hammered black for plastic. Tuned out a lot better than expected. I also added a set of KC's using the fairlead bracket from AtoZ fab.

Before



After





Also got the sliders done......They are 2x4 1/4" wall with a 2x2 tube welded to the frame and the body mount bracket on each side. Tied to the body mount in the center. Tested them out at our fall run and they were plenty solid.

Nice jeep! Just wondering how did you mount your hi-lift back there? Also do you have a hard time getting in and out with those seats? I just picked up a set and mounted them on my stock risers but they lean back too far and it makes it hard to get in and out. Just dont want to spend 100 bucks for new risers from corbeau.

High lift was mounted with exhaust clamps, through the base on one side and a piece of garage door track cradles the other side. In the pic the toe is missing from the jack, but there's a hole in the cradle to put a padlock through the toe.




As far as the seats, I had the same issue. I put spacers on the rear mounts to rock the seats forward. Still without a tilt wheel I would have had to make new risers.

Thanks man, the guys here are calling it a TY-7. It's got a bit of an identity crisis.
